Real Railway Tales
From Taking the Marks to Double DerailmenteBook - 2014
Running a railway is a complex business that constantly throws up situations, dramas, and misadventures, both major and minor, for those involved in it. Geoff Body and Bill Parker have collated a rich selection of railway stories to create an enjoyable book of adventures and mishaps illustrating their daily obstacles faced on the railways, from handling the new Eurostar to train catering, nights on the Tay Bridge to rail "traffic cops," and from mystery derailments to track subsidence. However interesting the infrastructure of the large and varied railway business may be, the real heart of this great industry lies in its people, the complex jobs they have occupied, and the dedicated way in which they have carried them out.
